Item Description...
Overview
Many people, at one time or another, struggle with faith issues about sin, guilt, punishment, and hell. But a large segment of the population, many of them Catholic, are so afraid of sin that their lives are marked with anxiety and fear. These people suffer from an affliction called "scrupulosity." Rather than experiencing faith as a source of peace, scrupulous individuals can't seem to shake their feelings of impending doom, disappointment, and eventual condemnation. Based on thirty-five years of questions and answers to the Scrupulous Anonymous newsletter, this book provides specific answers to questions and concerns related to sin, confession, self-worth, sexuality, prayer, God's forgiveness, thoughts, dreams, fantasies, and other issues. It offers words of encouragement and helpful suggestions to those who suffer from this affliction and for those who counsel them.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
OCD sufferer  Feb 29, 2008
This book is a must for anyone suffering from Scrupulosity and OCD. It explains the problems and gives ways to ease the stress. Since this form of OCD is not as well known, this is one of the few books on this subject and it is a good one.
 
Perfect book for those suffering from Scrupulosity (OCD, Anxiety)  Nov 27, 2007
Scrupulosity can be a component of anxiety and OCD. The manner and style in which the information in this book is presented is perfect for the brain which functions in this way. I highly recommend it. I found the book to be trustworthy and will provide the scrupulous person with relief. You can read more about this book and/or subscribe to the Scrupulous Anonymous newsletter by visiting the Liguori website, scroll down and click on the link to "Spiritual Newsletters."
 
Heartfelt attempt - still disappointed  Sep 28, 2007
Thorough books on scrupulosity are extremely rare, and although this was a heartfelt attempt, I have to say that I was disappointed. The book was divided into categorical chapters, but was mostly comprised of questions and answers. It was repetitive at most times. It took a lot of information from the Scrupulosity Anonymous (SA) newsletter, which can also be found online.
Good attempt, just wish it was a more thorough analysis and explanation of scrupulosity from a Catholic perspective.
The author is a Catholic priest, who is respectable and good-hearted. I believe he truly cares about those he ministers to. Reading the book made me realize the importance of being counseled by a person of the faith who is likewise trained and knowledgable in OCD from a clinical perspective. For example, some of the advice he gives readers seemed to be more enabling than clarifying.
Either way, it is a good book for therapists/clinicians because it gives a general scope of the scourge of scrupulosity and treatment from a pastoral perspective. Great for people suffering from scrupulosity because in reading this you realize more that you are truly not alone - God knows your suffering and so do countless of others. There IS help!
